Former US President Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit against Facebook, Google, Twitter and the heads of these three social media and technology companies.

Former US President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit against Facebook, Google and Twitter and the heads of these three companies in the South Florida District Court on July 7. During a press conference on the same day, Donald Trump said he would call on the court to issue an order banning these companies from censoring the American people.

Facebook, Google and Twitter are accused of violating Donald Trump's First Amendment rights by suspending his accounts. The lawsuit also argues that Facebook should not be treated as a private company with a state element, and therefore its activities are bound by First Amendment restrictions on government for free speech. Under the U.S. Constitution, the First Amendment restricts the actions of governments rather than private companies.

Former President Donald Trump's lawsuit also calls for the repeal of Article 230 of the US Communications Standards Act, which protects social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube from content lawsuits.

Facebook, Google and Twitter have not yet commented on Donald Trump's lawsuit.

Twitter in January permanently banned Donald Trump's account on the grounds that his comments could incite more violence following riots at the US Capitol on January 6. Meanwhile, Facebook decided to ban Donald Trump's account for two years and will only lift the ban when there is no longer a risk to the safety of the public.

Former President Donald Trump announced his lawsuit was in response to the actions of these companies.
